    You can hide fields permanently. Simply right click the field then select Hide Field. Is this what you want? Check this screenshot:

    However, if you want to hide/show field depending on the answer from the other field, you can stick with the hide/show condition just like what you are currently doing with your form.

    Let us know if you need further help. Thanks!

    Thank you thats perfect!!

    One last question,

    is there a way to remove the figure in the calculation field before any data has been entered, as soon as some starts entering data i don't mind the result been shown.

    at the moment its shows a figure of 50.94, this correct I just don't want to show it before a user starts using the calculator.


    many thanks
